Upwork is in a bad state. They don't care about freelancers. They don't care about clients. They care about one thing only...money. To that end, they steal your income off the top by taking 20% of your earnings. That's cash straight out of your pocket. Food out of your family's mouth. And it gets worse...
When greedy Upwork went public they suddenly had shareholders to please. So they had to find new ways to suck more cash out of freelancers. By now you've probably noticed that Upwork charges you $0.15 per Connect, which wouldn't be that big of a deal, except most gigs cost 4-6 Connects. And the real problem is that the gigs haven't changed.
So even though you might have to pay nearly $1.00 just to apply, you're applying to the same old gigs. The same old clients (Clients who don't respond. Clients who aren't serious about hiring. Clients who waste your time.). I don't know about you, but I'm not spending all of my money just trying to get an interview through Upwork. Especially when there are better, faster, easier ways to find high-paying clients outside of Upwork.
And that's what this course is about.
When you enroll in this course I will show you:
How I find freelance clients beyond Upwork that pay way more than Upwork clients and are easier to work with
Freelance platforms that don't charge you an arm and a leg for a chance to have your time wasted
Which social platforms I use to find clients outside of Upwork and how I get those clients to come to me
Cold emailing methods that actually get high-paying freelance clients to respond fast and easy
Unconventional approaches to earn clients that probably no one else is doing anywhere
Secrets to help you escape Upwork for good so you can actually make money and never look back!
If you're sick and tired of greedy Upwork's dirty business practices, suspending your account for no reason, charging you out the wazoo because they have a poor money model, and generally treating you like dirt (when they wouldn't exist without you)... Then stick it to them when you enroll in this course and take back control!
Because once you have other ways to find clients, and once you've found the one that works for you...you will NEVER need Upwork again.

Your Escape Instructor,
P.S. I know greedy Upwork is the holy grail of freelance websites, and I know finding clients outside of Upwork seems scary, but as long as you give up control by using their platform, you will never have true freedom even if you work from home. Just like they've done to me numerous times, they can and will suspend or ban your freelance account at a moment's notice if they think you've broken a rule (even when you haven't).
If you are trying to build a career as a freelancer, then you need to take this seriously. Control is EVERYTHING and without it you put your entire freelance business and your income at stake (and that's on top of all the money you pay them). Think about that, and then make the choice that is best for you.
Who this course is for:
- You should understand that this is a BEGINNER LEVEL course.
- You should NOT expect to pay $10 and get elite information sent from the gods.
- You should be someone who can watch a talking head video, take the information, and apply it to get results.
- If you have a poor mindset then this course will be useless for you and you should not enroll.
- Only enroll in this course if you are ready to put in the effort to get results.
Hi there, I'm Lex DeVille and you probably shouldn't join my courses. I'm a terrible role model despite holding a BA and an MA in Psychology. Plus, I play with the devil's tools - NLP, hypnotherapy, influence, persuasion, and knives. Yes, I practically cheated my way to a full-time freelance income multiple times, all of which were documented in detail, but hey, it's not like there was a "no skipping the line" sign hanging on Upwork's door.
The real reason you shouldn't join my courses is because I must suck at freelancing otherwise I wouldn't teach. I mean, yeah, my Upwork profile is ranked in the #1 search position across like 10 to 20 search terms worldwide right now, and yeah, I boosted my Upwork earnings from $20k+ to nearly $40k+ over the last month or so, and sure, my last client was an international celebrity and the client before that was paying $10k+ per month for copywriting services, and I've been invited to over 100 Upwork gigs in the past month which anyone can see by viewing my profile from a client account...
Okay, so I have over 200 pages of 5-star Udemy reviews, and over 10,000 freelance subscribers on YouTube, and sure, you probably aren't that familiar with the places I've been featured, like The Fastlane Forum, MilitarySpouse, NextGenMilSpouse, Ash Ambirge's Unf*ckwithable Girlfriends, Kyle Keegan Radio Show, The Joplin Globe, iNLP and others, but that's because I don't spend my time pitching Forbes, Huff Post, or Entrepreneur. I only show up when people invite me.
I mean, basically, all I've done was started multiple Upwork accounts from scratch and grew them into full-time incomes in a month, and then branched out into clients beyond Upwork, but that's practically nothing. I mean, yeah, there's the part where I've trained over 14,000 people, and a bunch of those people went on to earn full-time incomes as freelancers, and several reported breaching the six-figure mark, including some who only watched my free training videos...
But I digress, I'm moody, sinister, and don't play fair. I'm not a good guy and never claimed to be. I legally changed my name to Lex DeVille for a reason. Look, you can judge, you can hate, you can go green with envy, but what I teach gets results, and while it's possible you might uncover some of the same ideas if you scour the internet long enough, you can spend $10 with me and get a lot of good info laid out in one place in an easy to consume course and you can join a community of people who get results every single day.
But if you're the kind of person who thinks you deserve freelance clients just because you exist, well, you probably won't like my courses because I teach people to be valuable, help clients, and approach freelancing like entrepreneurs instead of employees. Most people don't like that because it's hard work and they want handouts. You won't find any handouts here. Instead, I tell you what has worked for me in the past and what is working for me now. It's up to you to put it to use, get results, and change your life. See you inside.
